Love to miss game against Pistons with sore foot

Nosebleed seats were reselling for as little as $2 an hour and a half before tip-off

"It kills him to not be able to play".

The Pistons scored the first six points of the game before the Cavaliers scored the next 11.

Cleveland ultimately dropped the game by the scored of 102-86 and has been outscored by a combined 58 points in four games. Boston shot just 32 percent in the first half and missed all 11 of its 3-point attempts.

"Blake's a handful", Stevens said.

"These are big growing pains and we need to get through these", he said.

The Pistons shot a awful 18 percent (7-of-37) from 3-point range, while the C's shined from beyond the arc at a 41 percent clip.

Boston ranks 28th in field-goal percentage at 40.7.

"It is disappointing", Pistons coach Dwane Casey said.

Drummond notched his 22nd career 20-20 game on Thursday, and second this season.

But that hasn't stopped Cleveland fans from going to games.

The Celtics looked sharp in the first quarter, which concluded with the visitors holding a 30-21 lead. Boston made 9 of 14 3-pointers in the quarter.

The two major sporting franchises that share the Little Caesar's Arena in Detroit have resorted to changing the color of the seats from an eye-popping white to a more unassuming color in order to mask poor ticket sales.

Free throws by Jackson and Galloway put the Pistons up by nine before Sexton finished the scoring with a jumper.

Those numbers are inflated by his most recent outing - a 50-point outburst in a 133-132 overtime win over the Sixers, going 20-of-35 from the floor to go with 14 boards and six assists.

Marcus Morris added 21 points, Al Horford scored 19 and Kyrie Irving had 15 for the Celtics. He missed Cleveland's last game against the Detroit Pistons, and that hurt, as Lue and the Cavs lost 110-103 to Blake Griffin and company. Jabari Bird has not played yet this season because of personal reasons.

Needless to say, things aren't great right now for the Wine and Gold, and now Kevin Love is dealing with reported foot soreness.

Robert Williams III scored the first points of his National Basketball Association career in emphatic fashion. Boston posted a 62-34 edge in bench scoring.

Cavaliers forward Cedi Osman had three points on 1-of-8 shooting to go with six fouls in the loss to the Pistons.

Back-to-back games against the preseason favorite in the Eastern Conference should tell the unbeaten Detroit Pistons how good they really are.
